New e-resources - Caribbean Literature

We have just purchased a new database, Caribbean Literature, from Alexander Street Press.

This resource has the full text of 339 works from the 19th and 20th centuries by Caribbean writers in English, French, and Spanish, and creoles. Regular updates and additions are promised. Currently there are 83 titles in French and French creoles, including poetry, prose, and non-fiction, the majority of which Stanford lacks in print.

This should be a welcome addition to our collections, especially given new course offerings in Caribbean literary and cultural studies. You can search within the full-text, by author, title, and limit your search by place of publication, date range, language, and author details.
